In natural systems, electron flow is mediated by proteins that spatially organize donor and acceptor molecules with great precision. Achieving this guided, directional flow of information is a desirable feature in photovoltaic media. Researchers in the Nanobio Interfaces Group at the Center for Nanoscale Materials have designed self-assembled peptide materials that organize multiple electronic components capable of performing photo-induced charge separation.
